Day One No Sweet T

Friday, September 21, 2012

I decided today that I would do something healthy so I began my no sweet tea regimen. My goal is to go one week without it with the exception of my birthday. I'm at a little early start because I was going to wait until Sunday but I just needed to do something to pat myself on the back with today. I subscribe to alot of fitness and nutrition success fan pages on facebook and they send these inspirational quotes to my wall on a regular basis. I decided to not make any excuses and just drink water. You have no idea how hard it is to give up sweet least for me. I grew up on it! Which is probably why I've always been overweight. I refused to believe the sugar content was the same as drinking a soda. Totally in denial here!!

So I did it today. I had a craving earlier and so I had a glass of diet soda. Seemed to help. Other than that, I was really tired this evening and took a two hour nap. I found this one fitness model named Maria Kang on facebook. Even with three kids and little sleep, she still manages to get out of bed and exercise. I'm tired all the time but I want to do this for my son. And I asked myself what's more important?? Having sweet tea or having the energy to run after my little boy??

Nuff said. emoticon

    I learned to drink decaffeinated tea with no sugar and I like it now. LOL.

    I had 4.3 miles yesterday.

    You are putting things into perspective...Awesome!
    I used to drink Dr.Pepper many times a day, and now, I don't drink any at all. It was definitely a change for me, and I thought I'd never be able to stop it, but I did. It took less time than I thought it would.
